I normally don't honour dead people in my posts (dead celebrities, for that fact) but I can't not post this quote. Hearing the passing of Maya Angelou the other day was a sad one; I didn't know she was unwell, and her mental attitude towards life is one to be inspired after. I remembered I had a quote of hers that I've hung onto. I've hesitated posting it all these years because.. because.. I don't really have an answer. It's hit me personally and has been an extremely challenging and every time I go to post it, I can't because I'm just not that strong (as the quote implies).
"Just because I am in pain, doesn't mean I have to be one."
~ Maya Angelou
I have not become this person. I try, honestly I do, but this is a level of humanity that I have not (and wonder will not) achieve. But like I said, she's inspiring, and I do try.. so maybe someday.
